Removing Stains from Your Carpet

Published on September 5th, 2018

We’ve all been there: we set a drink down on the carpet only to forget about it and knock it over five minutes later. This is extremely frustrating and can leave a lifelong mark on your carpet if you do not take care of it properly. If you have carpet in Plainfield and you accidentally spill, use these tips to get rid of stains. The best part? You likely already have these products sitting around your home!

Removing Water-Soluble Stains

Certain stains on your carpet in Plainfield are water-soluble, including things like alcoholic beverages, sodas, ice cream, jelly, milk, washable ink or latex paint. In order to get rid of this type of stain, create a simple cleaning solution composed of ¼ teaspoon of non-bleach detergent or white vinegar with 32 ounces of water. Repeat as necessary! For special water-soluble stains including blood, coffee, mustard, tea, wine and more, try mixing 1 tablespoon of ammonia with 1 cup of water. You can also try mixing one part chlorine bleach with five parts water, but only if your carpet is solution-dyed.

Removing Fat, Oil or Wax

If you spill a substance with fat, oil or wax, try placing a paper towel over the carpet and iron it. The substance will remove itself from the carpet and stick to the paper towel.

Urine

Use paper towels to soak as much urine as possible, then blot it with a cold cloth. Make a solution composed of half a teaspoon of non-bleach detergent with 32 ounces of water. Blot try as necessary.

Once you invest in carpet in Plainfield, you’ll want to ensure it stays in pristine condition!
